Dune aluminum flatware set by Andrea Ponti

February 10th, 2016 by retail design blog

Designed in Hong Kong by Italian designer Andrea Ponti, Dune is an aluminum flatware set inspired by the concept of food design meant as experimental cuisine and molecular gastronomy: a culinary research lab that seeks to explore the technical, artistic and social aspects of cooking.

In this multi-sensory conception of food every single component is essential: from cooking spaces and utensils to table ware and packaging. In Dune the experimental aspect of food design appears both in the structure of the set and in the materials. The traditional flatware collection has evolved in to a more modern “personal flatware set” with a contemporary look and feel.

The aluminum makes this flatware ultra-light and much sleeker than steel or titanium flatware, while the anodized finishing makes it extremely durable and easy-to-clean. The name Dune echoes the shape of the flatware: in each piece the straight handle leads to a curvy transition that resembles a sand dune. The Dune package is freestanding and can be used to easily and elegantly store the flatware set or it can be used as a rack to display the flatware set and show the connection between food and design.
